As some of you may already know, not only am I a wedding planner… but I am also a huge fitness fanatic. I live/breathe/eat the healthy lifestyle.
My bestie Ashley Scott “The Skinny Fit Girl” is also a fitness fanatic (check out her blog HERE) and we did a photo shoot together that you will see in some of these photos. It was amazeballs. She also did a little “Fit Follow Friday” on yours truly!
I think the first question people ask me is, “how did you get started in the world of health and fitness?”
I first started my health journey back in April of 2011. I realized there was so much more to life than just working and partying. I needed a hobby that would make me feel good, keep me busy and give me more of a purpose in life. I started looking at fitness models on facebook and was immediately fascinated by them and what they do. I never realized there that is a whole world out there dedicated to fitness and healthy eating. Every day I would look at those girls and think to myself, “What can I do to become one of them?” So, I first started my journey on the treadmill because unfortunately, all I really knew about fitness was cardio. I started running a few times a week from April-September and lost the few initial pounds I wanted. Then I learned about the best kept secret, LIFTING WEIGHTS! I picked up my first real set of weights in September of 2011 and got some help from The Get in Shape Girl for a few months (check her out).
I have now become a lean mean weight lifting machine and have never looked back. I have competed in two NPC shows, done some fitness photo shoots and have two more coming up in July! I have so many goals that I want to achieve for my “fitness future” and with my drive and determination along with the help/support from friends and family; I cannot wait to accomplish them all!
